By forging strong partnerships with local farmers, fishermen, and artisans, The Apurva Kempinski Bali ensures that the Locaflair menu utilizes the highest quality ingredients. This commitment not only supports local economies but also reduces transport emissions, guaranteeing guests the freshest and most flavorful products. In line with their sustainable approach, the resort meticulously curates a selection of seafood dishes sourced from certified suppliers dedicated to sustainable fishing practices, allowing guests to savor seafood delicacies without compromising environmental integrity.

Embracing a comprehensive waste reduction strategy, the resort implements precise portion control, creative techniques to repurpose all parts of the ingredients, and an award-winning composting and recycling program. Through effective waste separation and composting processes, organic waste is transformed into nutrient-rich compost, enriching the resort’s hydroponic garden.

As we strive to inspire others within the hospitality industry, we aspire to be committed to sustainable practices that generate positive impacts on both the environment and society.
